The mission of the Delaware State Funeral Directors Association is to promote the general perception of funeral service as a profession, whose practitioners are committed to the highest ethical standards. Our programs are designed to strengthen the skills of our members, allowing them to successfully operate their funeral firm in a time of significant change in public attitudes and expectations. Encouraging a new generation to enter the profession, the Delaware State Funeral Directors Association provides select resources for inquiring students. Also existing to serve the consumer, the Delaware State Funeral Directors Association works diligently to cultivate awareness in the general public about the role of the funeral professional, and the importance of ceremony and remembrance.
Delve into the early years of our history with Keith Parsell, Past-President of the DSFDA, who shares what he knows about the beginnings of Delaware's funeral directors association. A work in progress, this history of the DSFDA will continue to unfold during the months ahead.
Our mission statement reflects our two-fold commitment: to foster both the professional and personal growth of Delaware's funeral professionals; as well as to support consumers in understanding the details and intrinsic value of the funeral service options offered by Delaware funeral homes.
